Digital Facsimile

"Buchwald was the King's doctor. He was a skilled surgeon, and due to his friendship with the king, he was given the chair of medical professor at the university in Copenhagen. This profoundly changed medical studies in Denmark, where previously only theoretical doctors had taught surgery to the students. He also had a keen interest in botany and as professor of medicine, he was in charge of the great botanical gardens with its excellent section of medicinal plants. The moment he was put in charge, he began reforming the Botanical Garden, which did not please everyone. He also made the present work, which is a sort of descriptive catalogue of the Botanical Gardens, in which he organized the plants alphabetically and enhanced it with real specimens from the Garden."--Lynge & Son datasheet.
